a big deal. so what is a big deal? white house officials tell me anything over $2 trillion, but he is pushing for more in the area of cuts that would equal $4 trillion over the next 10 to 12 years. now, this all comes against the backdrop of a report today in the "washington post" saying thatm president obama is putting social security on the table along with medicare and medicaid and when we asked the white house about this, they said, look, this is not news. the president has always supported the idea of small cuts in those entitlement programs to make them more effective as long as the cuts didn't impact beneficiaries and having said that some folks on the hill say there are some scenarios which would see a major overhaul of the entitlement programs, but the white house says they would not want to see anything to overhaul the main programs. but one of the sticking points here, thomas, is taxes. democrats want to see a rollback in tax credits for the wealthy americans and in big corporations, and the republicans have said no way, we don't support anything that looks like a tax in

, here's where things stand. there are three different big deals out there. number one is what the president and speaker boehner and eric cantor are negotiating, which is, yes, a big deal that is separate from anything the gang of six in the senate is working on. and then of course there's mcconnell-reid. one thing that's going on in the last 24 to 48 hours, is any deal that's mcconnell-reid that includes this idea of sort of the disapproval vote, giving the president more power to raise the debt ceiling, that thing has grown to the point of almost being toxic with some house republicans. in fact, they hate it so much, they may prefer to negotiate with the president directly. but for the white house, getting the 217 means making a deal acceptable to at least some of those houses with 87 new members. the man who's made himself their standard bearer, majority leader eric cantor put it this way. >> one-third of the republican conference and one-quarter of the entire house of representatives are freshmen, they're new. many of them have never served in public office before. >> yes,

, and the big obstacle has been that while we are willing to give the president a little running room to discuss that framework, the republicans have said no to even talking about the revenue piece. >> and yet there is some anger, isn't there, from democrats about the extent to which the president is prepared to compromi compromise, but isn't he right the do so given the perilous state of the debt ceiling discussions and the impending deadline? >> well, first of all, there is no agreement. there are a lot of rumors flying around about what may or may not be in an agreement. for example yesterday there was a story that the white house agreed to $3 trillion in cuts and no revenues and that is what understandably got a lot of people worked up. the white house has been clear today and from the beginning that any balanced plan is going to require real revenue. so i think that it is important for us to, you know, focus on what the president says actually will be in the plan and not what some of the rumors suggest. again, to go back to your point here, democrats in the congress are prepared to do a bal

sort of nine-month option. despite the drama, is a big deal still in the cards? and as the dealing keel reel i reeling, proof congress is broken beyond repair. some say this congress is the worst ever and he's seen lots and lots of bad ones. >>> to the iowa straw poll break the back of a campaign? sure looks like it. tim pawlenty and michele bachmann going toe to toe lashing out at each other. >>> good morning. this is "the daily rundown," i'm which t chuck todd. >>> house speaker john boehner and harry reid have separate plans in the works to raise the debt ceiling before next tuesday's deadline. house republicans are flat out dismissive of reid's plan for a $2.7 trillion cut since a trillion of the cuts are not really new but simply counting the saving from the wind down of the wars in iraq and afghanistan. senate republicans say reid was with them on a two-step increase process, but that the white house shot that down. and the white house says it's all up to boehner to find a way forward. now, pressure is mounting, so is anxiety over the markets. here's white house chief of staff bi

on cutting a big deal to take us through five to ten years, not just five or ten weeks. the problem, it seems to me, yesterday was a good example of it. you have questions tweeted to the president of the united states, questions delivered from the real world about housing problems, about i'm losing my house, my mortgage, what are we going to do. not policy questions from washington media members. the problem is that the president is dealing with a number of people who don't live in the real world. for example, eric cantor. no matter how many times he's been on and how many times we talk about rescinding the bush tax cuts, he calls it a tax increase. go to the grocery store and milk is on sale for $3.25. the next week it goes up to $3.75. it's not a hike in price, it's reverting back to the original price. they don't live in the real world. they just don't. >> he'll be on this morning so you can ask him again. >> we will ask him again. >> i would like to ask him what it is they offered yesterday that was different. the president talked about boehner's question being skewed. i put the question
